MicroMillions II: Andre 'acoimbra' Coimbra's Ironman mission
He's a man on a mission and he's not shy about talking about it. Team PokerStars Online's Andre 'acoimbra' Coimbra is going to play every MicroMillions II event over the next 11 days. It may be a micro stakes series but it's going to take the heart of a high roller to pull through this ironman challenge.
acoimbra is going to play all one hundred events over the next 11 days. Most of these events, ranging from Event #1's $0.11 rebuys up to the $22 main event, have a gap of just two or three hours between start times. Should he build a few stacks there is a strong possibility that he'll be passing through a few sunsets without much - if any - shut-eye. And he'll be posting a video blog every day too which you can watch here at the PokerStars Blog every day, along with final table reports of every single event.
In his first submission (see below) acoimbra looks alert, excited and, truth be told, a little like a James Bond super villain with all that hand steepling. We'll see what he looks like on day six...
So far things are going well for the Portugese online grinder; he is - at the time of writing - 755/8,210 with 379,460, some way ahead of the 216,000 average stack. Only the top 100 places pay so he's still got some work to do.
You can find acoimbra, and any other pro online, through the PokerStars lobby by clicking Requests>Find a Team PokerStars Player. Over the next 11 days the chances are you'll see his name on that list.
